Why Are You Going Solar?

We want to hear from you!

  • What entices you about solar energy?
  • Why did you decide to take the plunge?
  • What is your main goal for your new solar system?
  • How excited are you?

    We have thought about going solar for years, but it was out of our reach financially. Finally an affordable option! I hope you will repeat the program so many more people will have the opportunity.

    I believe that sometime we all must convert to renewable energy. Eventually carbon based energy will either run out or it will poison our environment and cripple our planet. It's difficult to start converting when you realize that you are a minority, and it does little good until we get a majority involved, but I guess we must start somewhere. Maybe if we start, it will influence someone else to do the same.

    I have always believed in renewable energy for environmental reasons and also for financial reasons. Coming from Massachusetts, there is a plethora of companies that offer renewable energy solutions. I was quite surprised that Sunrun does not (yet) operate in this state.

    I believe it is pure economics that we should take full advantage of free and renewable energy sources especially where solar is abundant. It is about time that everyone understand the folly of paying for expensive, dirty, politically detrimental energy and switch to renewables.

    I did a 20 year study on the cost of energy and it appeared natural gas is going up faster than electricity. Also I do not have a way of producing methane. I put in a geothermal heat pump heating and cooling system for my home that runs on electricity and am wanting to be as self sufficient as possible without being a fanatic. Therefore to further reduce my dependence on monopolistic entities I want to put in PV system and possible follow up with solar hot water.

    In times of war we refer to the number of soldiers in a theater as "boots on the ground". In our war on mother earth we have far too many "boots on this ground" for our own good. If we don't start trying to lessen the footprint of those boots now, how will 10 billion survive here within fifty years. Everyone needs to start thinking of ways to help. This may be my way of starting to pay back to the future for the mistakes of our past.

    I have been talking up solar for years. Now is a great time to act and hopefully get others to act. This is one small step to help our air quality.

    I've been interested in solar power for years. Had looked into doing a home system myself several years ago and it was going to cost about $17K before rebates. Too rich for my blood and after rebates would have taken about 10 years to offset costs given savings. Hopefully this round cost will be lower and having a professional installer do the job right is the way to go.

    Why complain about pollution etc. if you are not willing to make a change. If there is some way to take advantage of this opportunity I feel that it is worth the effort to check it out.

    I would love to be able to convert my home to a clean source of electricity, and change out all of my appliances and water heater to electric.
